(Remember I don't have a traditional oven.)
So let's start looking at recipes...
Have you ever made turkey breast in the crock pot?
Here's how Spicy Southern Kitchen says to cook it...
She says: "A turkey breast cooked in a slow cookercomes out exceptionally moist and flavorful. I added a packet of dry onion soup mix, some dried sage, and a chopped up onion, carrot, and celery stalk to really up the flavor.
Just a few minutes of prep and about 5 to 7 hours of hands off time in the crock pot is all it takes (if the turkey is completely defrosted).
You can check with an instant read thermometer to see if it is done.
The cooking juices, which are nicely flavored from the onion soup mix, are easy to turn into a yummy gravy with just a little flour.
Serve the gravy with sliced turkey breast, mashed potatoes, and dressing for an easy meal."
Add A Pinch came up with this recipe for Southern cornbread dressing. I think I like the dressing better than the turkey!
Gimme Some Oven makes these mashes potatoes in her crock pot. Is there nothing you can't make in the crock pot???
Or I could go this route...
Seed At The Table cooked up this delectable sweet potato casserole. I do love sweet potatoes!
This mushroom green bean casserole looks delicious! It's by Del Monte. What is a Thanksgiving meal without good old green bean casserole?
Then there's fruit salad...
My Recipe Magic has this recipe for fruit salad. It sure does look good. And that would be delicious the next day as well.
Love From The Oven bakes this pumpkin pie. The ingredients are very much like the one I baked when the kids were at home and beyond.
I'm not a big bread eater. So I probably wouldn't have hot rolls. That dressing would be enough for me.
I'd probably get a can of cranberry sauce. Yes, I know it's better to have fresh. But I really do like that canned cranberry sauce.
And even better are the leftovers! I wonder why it is that the Thanksgiving leftovers seem to taste better?
So with my crock pot and convection oven, I can cook up a mighty tasty Thanksgiving meal. And boy, will there be leftovers galore!
